Amber Read may well not be having a lot of a shoulder to cry on from the general public amid her demo with Johnny Depp — but her lawful team definitely is … precisely, Elaine Bredehoft.
It is really been a strained week for Staff Read … at minimum that looks to be the basic consensus on-line, with numerous noticing what seems to be evident — namely, that Ms. Bredehoft had a difficult go throughout redirect following Camille Vasquez‘s laser-concentrated cross-evaluation of AH.
If you watched that on Tuesday (Amber’s very last day on the stand), you certainly observed the annoyance as Vasquez consistently objected to inquiries Bredehoft asked … and the decide sustaining a good sum of them, almost to the level EB could hardly get a term out.
In point, Bredehoft seemed to acknowledge the issues in the moment … evidently seeking up into her feelings/figuring out a way to inquire anything without the need of objection. She practically stated, “I’m attempting, I’m making an attempt” … and in the conclusion, failed to have way too thriving of a redirect.
Following Bredehoft wrapped redirect, Amber remaining the courtroom in a hurry … this just after the judge advised her she could phase down and rejoin her attorneys. Frankly, Amber seemed pissed.
There’ve also been rumors — unconfirmed kinds, thoughts you — that AH and her group have gotten into squabbles and shouting matches in court docket when the digicam was not rolling. No way of telling if that’s real, but it would seem to lend to most people’s perception that AH and co. are finding out lawyered during this demo … and that it may be getting maintain internally.
That leads us to the sympathy Elaine appears to be to have garnered by some … folks on TikTok and elsewhere say she and the other Read attorneys seem down and out a lot of the situations — and a handful of clear Depp supporters even say they experience for EB, suggesting she’s acquired an uphill battle as nicely as a not-so-easy-to-protect shopper — at least that’s their study.
Of system, we are sure Elaine herself would fiercely disagree with that characterization — and, far more importantly … it really is up to the jury on who’s received a leg up right now and who’ll win.
While a superior amount of money of individuals may feel Amber’s testimony was so-so in firming up her protection — others say the witnesses her staff put on thereafter were way additional successful in backing up her claim that Johnny was allegedly abusive/controlling amid their partnership.
JD’s ex, Ellen Barkin, testified he when threw a wine bottle towards her and was jealous. Plus, other AH witnesses testified to seeing alleged accidents and/or true beatdowns of Amber by Johnny initially-hand … and if the jury believes he struck her on even one particular event, he loses.
In other text, it’s anyone’s ball recreation at the minute … regardless of Tuesday’s outcome.
